West Jordan Pediatrician

Erica Takagi, M.D.

Erica Takagi, MD

About Erica:

After growing up in the local Holladay area, Dr. Erica Takagi relocated to the Pacific Northwest to complete her undergraduate studies. She later returned home for the mountains, family, and medical school.

Erica says she was drawn to Pediatrics because kids are resilient, playful, and unique. Additionally, she was attracted to being a pediatrician because she loves working with families and it gives her the opportunity to build lasting patient relationships and serve underserved communities.

When she’s not swaddling newborns or chatting with teens at work, Erica spends her time making memories with her close family and friends. She is a proud Swiftie, dog mom, and lover of all travel, food, and concerts.

While she has a peculiar talent for assembling things like puzzles and Ikea furniture, she confesses to being hopeless with technology and giving directions. That being said, since she has mastered the mnemonic “Never Eat Soggy Waffles,” she and Utah’s grid system are the perfect fit.

Parent Feedback

We've been going to Families First for nearly 10 years. We've seen many providers and loved them all. I love that I can get in quickly when my kids are hurt or sick. No doubt they have the best pediatricians in the valley.
